Being a stay at home mother has many benefits like, sleeping in, wearing pj’s all day, and being with my kids. But there are a few drawbacks (just keeping it real here), and the biggest one is… being alone. Even though you’re surrounded 24/7 by little munchkins running around, it’s not the same. Today I want to talk to my mama’s on why you need a tribe.
Meet my sweet friend Lilly from Daily Craving. I love this girl to pieces! We meet through blogging, but she has become more than just a blogger babe. She and her family have become family friends.
We have cried together, laughed together, and gotten through some hard times together. I’m so happy blogging has brought us together, I thank God for Lilly every day!
See Lilly, and I go way back to when I first started blogging. We have spent MANY late nights googling together, learning things, and being each others support system. And it’s not just when it comes to blogging but in LIFE. When mothering or life gets hard, I know that I can lean on Lilly to help.
You see without friends like Lilly, I would be pretty lonely. And that’s why you need a tribe.
Mothering can sometimes bring out the best and the worst of you. You need people around you to help pull you up when you need it, and that will share in your success.
You need other women that will laugh with you, cry with you. Someone that will tell you the hard truth, even when you don’t want to hear it. Someone that will challenge you to be better, and do better.
We are not meant to do life alone, we are made for community, for each other. Throughout the Bible, you’ll see scripture that points back to us not living life alone.
Mama, if you are reading this, and this is resonating with you, FIND A TRIBE. Get in a Facebook group, reach out to your neighbor, meet with that friend for a cup of coffee. STOP DELAYING IT!
I used to find any and every excuse not to go out for a girls night out (silly I know) and I would push people away when they got too close. But quickly I learned how dangerous and lonely it became.
I also realized how rejuvenated I felt when I took the time out to hang out with other moms who understood where I was at, that could help me when I was at my lowest, and that I could do the same for them.
DO NOT LET the enemy tell you don’t deserve friends, that no one will like you, or any other BS lies.
YOU are worthy of friendships, of having your tribe. YOU deserve it.
Thank you so much for stopping by, have a great day!
